this is so interesting

Take boots, for example. [Vimes] earned thirty-eight dollars a month plus allowances. A really good pair of leather boots cost fifty dollars. But an affordable pair of boots, which were sort of OK for a season or two and then leaked like hell when the cardboard gave out, cost about ten dollars. Those were the kind of boots Vimes always bought, and wore until the soles were so thin that he could tell where he was in Ankh-Morpork on a foggy night by the feel of the cobbles.
But the thing was that good boots lasted for years and years. A man who could afford fifty dollars had a pair of boots that’d still be keeping his feet dry in ten years’ time, while a poor man who could only afford cheap boots would have spent a hundred dollars on boots in the same time and would still have wet feet.

This is how it is really expensive to be poor.
I’ve seen a lot of fan-casting Gina Torres as Wonder Woman, and I was so excited by the idea that I had to draw her in my version of an updated costume. I can’t say I’m the most devoted Wonder Woman fan, but I do think there’s a sore need for a live action movie—and Torres would be so, so fantastic.
Taking a break from frustrating palettes to put the last touches on this. I got the sketch done a couple months ago and then forgot about it, but then minuiko posted this and I knew I had to get my act together and finish it.

It’s alright bb, we understand how hard it is being around two ridiculously attractive people. They will smush you in the middle of their cuddle pile eventually.

"Stephanie seems good. But she’s headstrong. Tim should balance her out. He’s more of a thinker — probably a great detective." - Nightwing
Words cannot express how much I love Robin!Tim and Robin!Steph duo
